We know organising a children's birthday party is an important event and can be a tough challenge. Vector Wero has the perfect solution for you! Get it started on this recreational ride on the Grade 1-2 Tamariki River. Your rafting guide will help you go through the gentle dips and eddies of this 200m water course --- and you'll master the course in no time.

Requirement: Children aged five, six and seven need to have a parent, caregiver or responsible adult on the water with them at all time.  Required ratio is one ( 1 ) parent per two ( 2 ) kids aged five to seven ( 5-7 ). If all participants are eight (8) years or older, they are able to raft on their own. Click here for more information.
